It was like "I thought gender neutrality was a joke, but it's real and I'm disgusted." He definitely used "pussification"

He seems to completely discount Yoel's cross arm / turtle guard. If Rockhold was kicking to the body a lot more, it wouldn't be useful, but for the shorter guy to deflect incoming straight punches, it's not a bad technique, especially as Yoel seemed to have Rockhold's respect for takedown threat off body kicks.

I like the shoutout for Adenaya's waist flick jab. Not for everyone but if you have good reflexes and a reach advantage, can definitely be a good tool.

Rockhold's punch combos are too slow. He has the speed, but still fires out strikes at half the tempo he needs to. He needs to get to another comfort level to really open up, to be able to cover more ground while punching in, to quit a combo early, and to draw enough defensive commitment to land kicks on open targets. His jab has so much promise, but we'll see what happens between fights.

ATTN INRI (and I guess pimp cauldron)
Was at the bike show, and Conor McGregor's training bike was there. The paint job is pretty impresive.


His cardio coach was junior national cycling champ and told Conor to cross-train cycling. He went from some cheapo Chinese knockoff bike to this, which is prob 8-10k street price.

Sage doesn’t move his head at all and seemed to get the worst of every exchange.

I think as TAM mold him, switching to a more conventional range is going to expose the lack of convectional defense until it really clicks, if it ever does.

Can someone clue me into what's driven the evolution of Jeremy Stephens' striking? I always had the mental image of him being a pretty typical stand-and-bang-er with dynamite in his fists, but he looked pretty crafty against Giblert with his kicks and Superboy with his feints.

I think one thing that's been hugely in his favor is his power. He knows he's got it, so he can dial back the pace and aggression and look for better openings. I think just by being less willing to engage, his defense has improved, where in the past, he was solidly in take one to land one territory.

Also, what is the deal with DC's mic setup? How many times has it been that he's sounded like he's talking into his hand?

The state is not going to organize them for them. And they're clearly not able to do it themselves.

I'm sad that the phone call genius from Anderson's hearing couldn't sneak his way in somehow.

Has anyone screenshotted those two sections and tweeted them at both the real Jon Jones and the chubby white guy?
